Far more and longer macros are now supported, with up to 100 unique macros of 200 characters now available. It is PC and Mac compatible, and includes additional hard-wired features such as unlimited custom key remapping, macro playback speed, optional audible key clicks and keyboard status reports.

The KB600 is the most popular model of the Advantage2, with standard QWERTY key legends and Cherry Brown tactile keyswitches. This keyboard is also available with Cherry Red linear keyswitches (KB600LF), Cherry "Quiet" Red linear keyswitches (KB600LFQ), dual legended QWERTY-DVORAK key legends (KB600QD) and with an eye-catching painted silver gloss finish (KB605).

Accessories:

Contoured Keyboard Single Action Footswitch Accessory
This is a front-hinged footswitch and comes with a 10' cable and works with all models (past and present) of Kinesis Contoured keyboards. A self-adhesive, hook and loop tab is provided to anchor the pedal to the floor if desired. If you like this pedal's look and feel but want to use more than one at a time, or you want to change actions without re-programming your keyboard, you will need to purchase a special splitter.

Contoured Keyboard Triple Action Foot Switch
The Kinesis Triple-Action Foot Switch is the most efficient way to take advantage of the unique foot input options provided with all Kinesis Contoured keyboards. Default actions are "Keypad Shift", "Keypad Enter", and "Shift". The "Keypad Shift" action turns on the embedded keypad layer as long as the pedal is held down. If the Keypad Toggle function key is tapped first, then the "Keypad Shift" pedal will turn OFF the embedded keypad layer while the pedal is held down. With a programmable Contoured keyboard, the foot switch may be configured to perform any user-defined keystroke or macro.
